Walkways at Kentec Electronics factory


Ecotile walkways

Founded 30 years ago Kentec Electronics have worked closely with their customers and end users enabling them to become a world leading life safety control systems manufacturer. The Kentec name has become synonymous with world class products and excellent support. Based in the UK Kentec is a truly global supplier exporting products to over 80 countries worldwide approved to ENS4, NFPA and marine classification societies. Using Ecotile to cover their walkways improved safety, protected the floor from further damage and smartened up the appearance of the factory as a whole in line with the company image.

The Challenge

Kentec Electronics needed a flexible flooring solution that they could just use in their walkways and that would prevent further degradation of the existing floor. They had been re-painting every 6 months for years but the oils in the substrate meant nothing would stick without disruptive and expensive treatment first.

Location: Dartford, Kent
Space: 200m²

1. The existing floor was wearing away in the areas where the trolleys wheel back and forth and needed to be protected from further damage.

2. Contamination in the substrate meant paint wouldn’t stick so time and money was being wasted on regularly repainting.

3. Kentec needed the flexibility of only covering the walkways rather than the entire floor.

4. A flooring they could install themselves around their production schedule saved them disruption, time and money.

The Solution

Market-leading manufacturer of interlocking floor tiles, Ecotile, designs and produces its comprehensive range at its UK production facility – providing durable and safe flooring solutions that can be installed with minimal disruption in commercial and industrial applications around the world.

“Our interlocking floor tiles offer unique benefits to factory applications as they combine a number of important features.

Working closely with Kentec Electronicss, we identified the Ecotile 7mm tile as the most appropriate solution to our client’s flooring challenges. This tile is extremely easy to install whilst offering a surface that copes easily with forklift traffic but also provides good anti-fatigue characteristics.

Our products are injection moulded using compound that demonstrates excellent wear characteristics, chemical resistance and stable electrical properties; easy to clean, durable and hard-wearing, the tiles are very low maintenance.”

James Gedye, CEO & Founder, Ecotile

A Sustainable Solution

All Ecotiles come with a 10 year product warranty as standard.

Manufactured using the highest grade material, once the tiles have reached the end of their useful life, we will collect the tiles – free of charge – and recycle them to produce the next generation of Ecotile.
